Catherine O'Shea is the oldest and most responsible of the three O'Shea sisters. She has just buried her mother, one of the last victims of the flu epidemic of 1918. Her father had been one of the first to succumb to the flu and her fiance was killed in the war.

In order to look towards a future with its offer of unconditional love they'll first have to bury the past.--from book jacket.
